    I hated Cam Mooney the player. But Cam Mooney the man off the field, what's not to like?

    The great thing about Moons is that he's never spoken in meaningless cliches which is a rarity amongst all players over the years.

    I hope the players don't hear what SEN think of them, it might shatter their fragile confidence.

    Agree. Cam put his hand up to be the KF we were lacking. I honestly believe he straightened us up and gave the mids confidence when going forward. He had been playing really well in defence, and also as follower when King was injured. Mooney was IMO, our most important player in 2007 and no fluke he was AA.

    As far as his prognosis for NM, I think he's spot on, and this year should see NM finals bound, hopefully not at our expense.

    He was always going to be a good player. I was spewing at the time he was part of the Colby trade as he could clunk a mark and we needed a young KPF coming through the ranks... we ended up relying on Rocca and Thompson in their latter years to fill that void. His biggest issue was maturity but when he got himself together ended up with AA and flags... I doubt they would have been so dominant in 2007 as he 'straightened them up' and gave them confidence going forward.

    Haven't watched the interview but he's always been good to listen to.

    I have a feeling the general humility of Geelong supporters has a lot to do with the 1989-2005 disappointments when they had very good sides that were either pumped in grand finals or lost finals in agonising ways (i.e., '97 Colby-non mark vs. Adelaide, '05 Davis show vs. Sydney). There were also years of big expectations (i.e., 1990, 1993, 2006) where they didn't even make the finals... a lot of heartache before tasting the ultimate success.
